·        Women Are Smarter Then Men, Part 1: Denny Cuddy   The other day, a middle-aged woman sadly told me her husband was "moving out." I responded that middle-aged men often get stupid, and she corrected me saying, "You mean 'stupider'." In a way, she was right, and I replied that I was one of the few men on earth who understood that women are actually smarter than men. She smiled, thinking that I was simply trying to make a clever point. However, I really meant what I said, and my understanding of female superiority began at a very early age...
·        Whats-This? A-Country-Opposing-Shariah Law   Authorities banish radical elements of Islam's agenda: In the wake of death threats against politicians and calls for a violent overthrow of government, German authorities are cracking down hard on Islamic extremism, most recently banning three Salafist groups seeking to impose Shariah law in Germany.On March 13, the same day that the federal Interior Ministry unveiled the ban of the extremist organizations, police also announced that they had foiled an unrelated Islamist assassination plot against a right-wing political leader in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
·        Holy-Week-And-Holy-War-Part-1: Exclusive: Chuck Norris examines assault on religious liberty in America --  It’s Holy Week, but what’s not so holy is the assault on religious liberty in the U.S. Religious liberty has been called rightly America’s “first freedom,” not only because the right is contained in the First Amendment but also because it predates the U.S. and has its origin in God, not government, and the freedoms He endowed within us. But over the past few decades, that basic freedom has come under assault, and in recent years particularly against Christianity.
·        So-Who-Is-An-Undisputed-Bully  Joseph Farah urges Americans to join him in 'fight for truth and justice':  Sometimes you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. That’s what a Washington state teaching veteran of 21 years found out recently when she tried to offer some illustrations for her government-mandated lessons against bullying. After all, to understand what bullying is all about, some examples might be enlightening. So Mary Janda offered up what probably sound like two pretty good ones on the current world stage – the terrorist organization Hamas and the Afghan Taliban responsible for harboring Osama bin Laden and imposing a harsh 7th century-style Islamic lifestyle on its subjects as well as blowing up ancient Buddhist statues. If Hamas and the Taliban are not good examples of bullies, who is?

The site said the Kremlin feared grow that both the European Union and United States were preparing for the largest theft of private wealth in modern history.
